The S-Trip! Mantra
In 2012 the S-Trip! staff came together to build and define our company mantra. These are our guiding principles to not only the way we organize trips, but how we live life each and every day.
Share The Journey
We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy the journey. This means working together, and making sure everyone is included.
Inspiration can come from anywhere and anyone. Whether it's a new idea, a new friend, or a new culture, we love learning from every person we meet.
Make An Impact
We believe in people's ability to make a difference. We seek to always make things better for our travelers and the communities that we visit.
Bring The Fun
We love what we do. We approach every day with the 'travel mindset'; embracing change, rocking a 'yes' attitude, and enjoying the ride.
We love creating incredible experiences for our travelers. We go the extra mile every day, recognizing that the the little things make a big difference.
The pursuit of travel excellence
We take extreme pride in the awards we have won, whether they accentuate our travel practices, or the way that we operate as a company. We are constantly challenging ourselves to improve and to achieve greatness together.
